How to Choose the Best Frames for Your Walls | Victoria BC Photographer, Printmaker and Gallery Wall Designer
Creating a gallery wall of family memories is a meaningful way to bring personality and style into your space. But even when you have a hard drive filled with beautiful digital memories, it can still be a daunting task to choose the best frames to display your photos.
In today’s post, I’m walking you through four different frame styles: Classic, Modern, Glam, and Chic to help you choose picture frames that will transform your photos into stunning wall art.
Popular Frame Types
Simple black, white, and grey frames are extremely versatile and can work in most interiors. They will stand the test of time with their clean and simple presentation and make your images speak for themselves.
Modern Wood Frames
Natural wood frames are a simple, clean, and “edgy” way to showcase your photos. The frames pictured below show two different stain types, in medium and dark, without gloss giving the poplar-wood moulding a natural, unvarnished look.
A darker stain is great for images with warmer tones while lighter coloured frames work beautifully with cooler tones such as blues, greens, and pinks.
Chic Picture Frames
With decorative square beading applied to a simple contemporary shape, finished with an antique patina, the below frames in silver, black, and gold find balance between a traditional ornamental frame and a more modern one.
These frames are very versatile and are perfect where a touch of originality and glamour is required. Black and white photos also pair beautifully in chic frames.
Glam Picture Frame
Frames that elegantly balance between a glamorous and understated look make your artwork look extra special. The classy look and feel of this style of picture frame give your photos an added dimension.
